Met Éireann issues status yellow weather warning as temperatures set to hit 28C
If you plan on lounging outdoors today then make sure you keep a bottle of sunscreen handy and remember to drink plenty of water too, because it’s set to be an absolute scorcher…
This week has given us some of the best weather we’ve had here in Ireland so far this year and judging by the reports from Met Éireann this morning, the good weather is going to continue.
According to Met Éireann: “Unbroken sunshine is likely in many places but some mist and low cloud may still affect some coastal parts of the North and Northwest at times through the day.
“Highest temperatures will range from 22 to 27, or 28 degrees, the highest values likely to be in Midland areas in very light Northerly or variable breezes, with sea breezes developing along some coasts in the afternoon.
However, while the good weather will bring it’s fair share of warm temperatures and sunshine, it will also increase your chances of getting sunburnt, as we found out yesterday thanks to one lad from Donegal and another who is in Chicago on his J1.
Severe sunburn can lead to various forms of skin cancer, not to mention an agonising couple of days while you get acquainted to the acquired smell of Aloe vera. So avoid looking like a lobster by slapping on a bit of sunscreen before it's too late. You’ll be glad you did…
